Leicester 2-1 Coventry: Kiernan Dewsbury-Hall sparks late Foxes comeback

Leicester came from behind to beat Coventry 2-1 in their Championship return with  Kiernan Dewsbury-Hall scoring twice.

After nine years away from the second tier, the 2016 Premier League champions appeared to be heading for a defeat. As Kyle McFadzean headed Coventry ahead in 47 minutes at the King Power Stadium.

However, Dewsbury-Hall equalised with 13 minutes remaining before scoring a late winner. Giving Enzo Maresca, Pep Guardiola’s former assistant, his first win as manager of the Foxes.

Coventry is proud of their performance in the past season, despite narrowly missing out on promotion. They continue to maintain high hopes.

Despite having a front line of Jamie Vardy and Stephy Mavididi. Leicester City dominated the first half but failed to create much. With Kasey McAteer threatening their pace in behind. The latter had the best chance as he stung Ben Wilson’s palms shortly before the break after racing in on goal.

Just after halftime, Coventry showed them the true nature of the Championship when captain McFadzean headed in Gustavo Hamer’s inswinging corner at the near post.

Maresca’s substitutions proved crucial in Leicester’s comeback, with Dennis Praet being one of the key substitutes, setting up Dewsbury-Hall to nod in with 13 minutes left.

Haji Wright, a new signing for Coventry City, almost won it for his team when he ran through and saw his deflected strike hit the crossbar before the Foxes won it at the other end. Dewsbury-Hall was the show’s star, combining with Mavididi before finishing with a masterful finish in the top corner.
